On this episode of DLEW, I talk with Kristen Brooks Sandler, choreographer and performer in NYC, and president of KB Media.
Every choreographer’s goal is to make a connection with their audience, and each choreographer tackles this goal in a different way. Kristen has developed her own incredible and unique approach to choreography, drawing on the very things that make HER unique. Join us for an inside look at Kristen’s choreography process and one AMAZING piece of advice.
Kristen Brooks Sandler is a NYC based choreographer whose work has often been described as at the intersection of theater & concert dance. She believes strongly in art as the medium through which any topic can be uniquely explored and discussed. Upcoming, Kristen is choreographing Lysistrata Jones in NYC, A Chorus Line at Mill Mountain Theatre, and her brainchild, Gilded, will be premiering at the Capital Fringe in Washington DC this summer.
